The 10 fastest-depreciating cars 2019
As What Car? research shows electric cars now hold onto more of their value than petrols and diesels on average, we reveal the models on sale today which depreciate the fastest...
7. Jaguar XJ 3.0 V6 diesel Luxury LWB
Price £65,400 Target Price £54,952 30k/3yr residual value £18,800 price drop £46,600 retained value 28.7%
Jaguar's take on the luxury saloon is great to drive, with excellent handling and a punchy range of engines. Interior quality is only so-so, though, and headroom is poor for rear passengers.
Price £21,895 Target Price £19,639 30k/3yr residual value £6150 price drop £15,745 retained value 28.1%
If you're looking for a spacious estate, then the 308 SW is a compelling choice, especially since it throws a range of frugal engines and a smart interior into the mix too.
5. Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTi 136 Auto SRi
Price £26,735 Target Price £21,473 30k/3yr residual value £7475 price drop £19,260 retained value 28%
This estate version of the Astra family hatchback is spacious inside, and if you go for a diesel version is competitive for company car buyers. A Skoda Octavia Estate is even more practical, though.
